Chelsea were awarded nearly £99 million last season by the Premier League as they claimed the title for the first time in five years.
Meanwhile, Mr. Jones said that Financial Fair Play "could be the most significant development in the football business since the Bosman ruling". Early signs are that this is the case, ' he said.
But that is all small change compared to the Premier League where the £3bn revenue mark was passed for the first time - and the average revenue of a top-flight club was £163m, which just further reinforces why promotion is the Holy Grail for clubs like Forest.
"In recent years, German football has used its strong financial base to achieve exceptional results".
Despite home-grown quotas forcing teams in the top flight to include eight of their own within their league squad, the system doesn't appear to have boosted the number of domestic players turning out for their clubs, with just 35% of players to start in the 2014-15 Premier League campaign eligible for England.
Combined broadcast revenue up by 48%.
It was revealed Aston Villa's income from the Premier League will be £68.6 million for the past season, with West Brom bringing in £72.7 million - which will go towards next year's accounts.
Both Manchester clubs also earned healthy incomes, with City’s totaling at £98.5m and United picking up £96.8m which was more than Arsenal got with £96.5m, because they featured in more live games than the Gunners did. The wages/revenue ratio in the second tier was 105 per cent in 2013/14, compared with 106 per cent in 2012/13. This resulted in operating losses of £222m and a combined pre-tax loss of £247m.
Austin Houlihan, senior manager at Deloitte's Sports Business Group, predicts that the Premier League's revenue could rise to a giant £4.4bn (€6bn) in the 2016-17 season.
"The Football League is right to try and ensure this is not at the expense of the long-term sustainability of any club".
"Indeed, the Premier League’s wages to revenue ratio reduced to 58 per cent (from 71 per cent) in 2013/14, the lowest it has been since the 1998/99 season".
That helped drive the overall size of the European football market to more than €20bn.
With the final value of the broadcast deal unknown, exact figures can’t yet be put on the payments from 2016/17 but if the new system was now in place, Championship clubs would get around £3m, League One around £450,000 and League Two £300,000. The other 18 clubs in the division saw aggregate revenues fall.
"The current broadcast deal comes as cost control regulations, at both domestic and European level, have caused many clubs to rein in their spending relative to the revenue they are now capable of generating", Jones said.
